Vision

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” –Eleanor Roosevelt. Ritchie Laurence started his hair career in the suburbs of Philadelphia at the age of 20. He has been behind the chair since 2003; but his interest in cutting hair came sometime around the age of 13 after seeing his mom’s passion for being a hair stylist. Ritchie has always had an interest for all forms of the arts, whether it be fine arts, music, fashion, hair, food, or nature. He was in art classes throughout his schooling. From those interests, he draws inspiration to bring back to the chair.

He loves spending afternoons walking around the city, looking at the shapes of the buildings and their relativity to the colors and shapes around them. On his hikes or while skiing, he looks at the textures and light reflections that come from all around him in nature. When it comes to his approach to hair, his biggest focus comes in the form of precision cutting and creating couture colors for each client. Ritchie looks at each person in his chair as the next canvas and during his consultation plans the steps he is going to take to make that guest completely satisfied with the finished style. He has had formal cutting training from companies such as Bumble & Bumble, Kevin Murphy, Sexy Hair Concepts, and the likes of Cristiano Cora. He has taken countless coloring technique classes with Wella, Loreal, Professional, Framesi, and completed color specialist classes with Eugene Perma.

Details matter. It’s worth waiting to get it right.

– Steve Jobs

Ritchie’s passion for hair shows through his work and the amount of detail that goes into each person’s haircut and color. Ritchie strives to have a thorough consultation with each client each time. Being on the same page before doing a guest’s hair is as important as the service itself. He doesn’t shy away from short edgy cuts that might go to the skin or long flowing layers of a classic long layered cut or an angled bob. He loves cutting sleek looks on straight hair or textured looks on wavy hair. He is also a master at cutting curly hair. Additionally, he unquestionably excels at men’s cutting and styling! He colors hair with as much attention to detail as he applies to cuts. He creates beautiful highlights using hand painted Balayage techniques and/or foils depending on the desired looks. With a sharp eye for tone, Ritchie can match any root touch up color every time.

Getting my hair colored by Ritchie is an experience I look forward to every month. He really examined my hair. My hair no longer turns brassy because he knows just what to do to give my hair fabulous color. I would never let anyone else color my hair.
